Review Books

  1. Does anyone have any suggestions for a new NCLEX review book? I asked for one for Christmas, was given the money for it (I asked to pick it out). I checked out some from the library, but they're old. I really want one with new format questions on it. Help appreciated. -Andrea

    When I started nursing school, someone suggested to me to get the NCLEX-RN book by Saunders. It has a light green cover on it. I have used that book as a study guide to the material that I was lectured on in class and it has helped me tremendously. It also has a great CD Rom that I plop into my computer to answer questions.

    Today, Santa brought me a new NCELX book - NCLEX 250 New Format questions. I had it on my wish list, it's pretty inexpensive - I think it was $15 on amazon.com. The only thing that I don't like about the book is that the question and answer are on the same page, and while you are reading the question, I have a hard time blocking out the answer, which happens to be in my peripheral vision. So I have to cover the answer before I read it. I wish the answers were in the back of the book instead of the same page, but I like that it has a lot of questions - choose all that apply, fill in the blanks, and charts and diagrams. I have also recently purchased a CDRom on Ebay called NCLEX Review 3000, with over 3000 questions on it. It was cheap, $10 used and I really like the format so far. I also have flashcards that I purchased that I take with me and keep in my purse so that way if I have a spare moment (waiting in lines) they are there. I have also purchased a Mosby's NCLEX book, but the new format ?s aren't in there. I think for the new format, you have to get the one that I mentioned earlier. It's by Lippincott. Hope that helps!

    i have a mosby's and I've been slowly workin my way through it. It seems pretty good but I don't think there are any new format questions in it. I have heard that lippincott is pretty good and so is saunders.

    Thanks for posting those links. It looks like we will have many new options coming out soon addressing the new-form NCLEX test questions.
